I guess I didn't do enough research but thanks for the information haha.
That is unfortunate that it would be nearly impossible to overcome to other problems on any permanent ground, but an improved VPN network definitely sounds feasible.
I've always believed in the underground staying underground anyways.
Anyways, instead of each connection being equal in a mesh network as is the case with leaf and hamachi, it may work better to designate a host/server per each vpn or segment part of a servers processing towards each separate vpn.
In that way, one would be able to see all of the available games in system link and by joining one you are joining the vpn associated with that game session.
Though that isn't necessary, given that there are going to be a lot of individuals who don't have as good of a connection, it can be broken up so they don't affect other players as much.
One gateway that everyone connects to initially and then is split into many sub networks.
Not sure if this is possible as I don't remember whole lot from cisco networking, but the client could transmit both a fake ping to override the system link requirement and a real ping to be placed in accordance with speed.

Are you shure that is impossible to clone XBL responses to create an alternative live? I think in the same partial solution to create an alternative live, but at first just simulate a good response from XBL that console it`s not banned to maybe have access again to HD.
I think of using a network card on PC for exclusive use of Xbox 360 to redirect the calls to XBL to a local server that simulate XBL responses.
Maybe create a alternative XBL with all theirs services can be impossible but some responses to unlock the HD can me possible.
I don`t see other solution now that MS can detect the moddified firmware. Can be really difficult to make but can be the ony solution for banned consoles.
I really think that your's ideia of create fake packages for make the ping less then 30ms should work too, maybe its time to exploit the network protocol.
Since it's encrypted even if one were to decrypt it and use that to create a fake XBL response on ones own machine, they could very well change the encryption the next day and it would have to be decrypted again on each xbox individually. Not a very realistic solution unfortunately as much as I wish it could be.
MS can't actually detect the modified firmware. It is currently believed that they are detecting the challenges/response timings from the drive. iXtreme out-performers stock firmware in that regard and so MS can detect it in that way.
